So today's installment of "It's Always Something" is brought to you by Tunze. Since getting my new 6105s, I have been fiddling with positioning to try and find a position that doesn't blow my sand all over. Yesterday, I tried a slightly new position, but during the night the Tunze moved slightly on it's own because the new ball style holders are not very tight. The result was the powerhead was aimed up and sideways such that it splashed water over the sides all night long. Not gallons but liters or quarts worth and certainly making a mess.
Last few days have been busy for the tank as I did some significant position changes. The primary purpose was to make room for the continued growth of my Loripes colony which was fast becoming over run by my Seriatopora and my Purple Monster. In addition I shifted several colonies around including the bleached Strawberry Shortcake, the Nasuta, and my Stylo frag from Keith B. as well as a few others. Now comes the hurry up and wait part to see if the changes were worthwhile. In the meantime the right side looks amazingly bare now without the great big pink birdsnest on top : ( Hopefully the Stylo will grow faster than it has so far as I'm trying something new and feeding Elos amino acids. I decided to give it a try after reading an article on Amino Acids at CoralScience.org.
